I'm using Mono on Mac, and recently I am looking in using IronRuby with Mono.

In Mono MDK 3.10.0 (and all older versions), I found it already included the IronRuby interpreter.
But it seems not including any ruby standard libraries. Could you advise how it should be used?

For example: 'pathname' is a standard ruby lib.

IronRuby on 3.10.0 ((detached/47db868 Thu Oct  2 22:04:39 EDT 2014)
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

>>> require 'pathname'
unknown: no such file to load -- pathname (LoadError)

While the native Ruby interpreter gives the result below:

irb(main):001:0> require 'pathname'
=> true

I downloaded the IronRuby 1.1.3 zip package. and found it includes both ironruby and ruby libs in Libs dir. But I couldn't find these libs under /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework.

These libs are quite essential to writing any ruby scripts, please help put them in.
